Here are three simple techniques which apply equally to the Ella Bella® or Fadeless® ranges to help you get the best out of these backdrops.The Ella Bella® range has a core diameter of 2.5 cm while the Fadeless® range has a core diameter of 3 cm.

Are the ellabella collection robust enough for little feet to be walking all over / jumping. or is it best to put a piece of perspex on top - just worried about slipping or grubbiness.
Does anyone use these backdrops length ways to get more background?


We haven't come across anybody needing to use perspex which I would have thought would make a slippy and reflective surface. If the paper gets grubby or torn you tear it off and roll out some fresh. The example on the How to page shows a wood paper length ways on the floor, no reason why you shouldn't do that for the backdrop as well if you can figure out a way of supporting the paper. There are example images on the Ella Bella product pages that customers have sent in and we've had nothing but positive feedback on these papers, especially at the price.

#2 Ian Edwards 2014-01-09 23:19 Hi Gemma, the Ella Bella paper is 90gsm, which is half the weight of our standard backgrounds so it is by definition not as robust, but it is also a lot cheaper, however I don't think you could describe it as easy to rip and we have many happy customers using these papers. For reference standard photocopier paper is usually about 75gsm. Quote
 
 
#1 Gemma 2014-01-09 22:25 Is this paper quite thick?
Just worried if it's easy to rip.

I have used Creativity International's 2.72 x 11 metre for some time now, and I have to say how impressed I have been. Firstly delivery has been within 48 hours from ordering on all I have ordered, and the paper is of excellent quality. I have also been impressed by the durability of the paper, it's not indestructible, but has never once torn. I recommend CI's paper backdrops 100%.
